revenue to support thatd fund that. >> they cut $500 billion from medicare. they also need lots of new revenue. the house would raise it by imposing a 5.4% you are fax with those are gross income of $500,000 or more. the senate raises the biggest chunk of its revenues through a 40% tax on so-called cadillac plans. >> this is an obvious place to do it. it's the largest untaxed fringe benefit in the u.s. tax code. >> obama advisers say the benefits like the ones wall street bankers enjoy, but the vast majority are union members and state government employees. martha: what happens to these plans when you put a 40% tax on them. >> many of those plans will get too expensive and slowly disappear. but there is a bigger result, this will result in larger tax bills for middle class families. the reason is because if those union members lose healthcare benefits which are untaxable, the senate is assuming they will get wages to replace that which are taxable. the senate is counting on raising $160 billion in new taxes over 10 years, the majority of which would come from the middle class. listen t
